Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum
President Kennedy more than once expressed his reciprocal admiration for Hemingway. He had Hemingway’s definition of courage in mind while writing his own Profiles in Courage. In a statement released by the White House when Hemingway died, Kennedy noted:
Few Americans have had a greater impact on the emotions and attitudes of the American people than Ernest Hemingway… He almost singlehandedly transformed the literature and the ways of thought of men and women in every country in the world.
